2021 Fantasy Outlook
McLaughlin saw reserve point guard minutes for a second straight season last year, averaging 5.0 points, 3.8 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 18.4 minutes, though he benefited from the Wolves dealing with multiple backcourt absences. This season, he'll continue to battle for backup guard minutes with Patrick Beverley and Jaylen Nowell. As a result, McLaughlin should continue to see fewer than 20 minutes per game, making him mostly irrelevant in fantasy. Read Past Outlooks
